Companies, associations, and government agencies are seeking ways to reduce their carbon footprint by complying with stringent emission regulations. Electric Vehicles (EVs), particularly those powered by electric or alternative fuels, offer greener & more eco-friendly transportation solutions. By adopting these vehicles, businesses can demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and gain a competitive edge in the market.


The high purchasing cost of electrical vehicles and investments in setting up charging infrastructure are major concerns hindering the U.S. electric vehicle market growth. Electric vehicles have huge benefits; however, there are several concerns regarding battery charging time, driving range on a full charge, and many more, which have been diminishing through continuous R&D by manufacturers over the past five years.

COVID-19 Impact

During the COVID-19 pandemic period, the U.S. market showcased minimal growth in EV sales. The initial phase of the pandemic disrupted existing production and even the suspension of supply chain operations. This hampered the production capacity expansion along with the shortage of semiconductors for automobiles. Despite such measures, the U.S. recorded a slight increase in EV sales compared to the previous year 2019. This factor showcases that buying behavior for electric vehicles was not impacted. As the pandemic started easing, the sales and supply chain of the U.S. EV business witnessed growth at a moderate speed.

U.S. EV Market Trends

U.S. EVs majorly leverage on battery type and propulsion type. These are the major factors that impact the buying behavior of customers as they affect emission ratios and the battery life of vehicles. The efficiency and dependency on fossil fuel will reduce by respective PHEV, HEV & FCEV types of electric vehicles. In addition, EVs emit lesser amounts of toxic gases when compared to IC engine vehicles. This has prompted various U.S. public transportation agencies, such as Sound Transit and Maryland Transit Administration, to expand their usage of electric vehicles for public transportation.

The battery electric vehicle segment held a major share of the U.S. electric vehicle market in 2022. BEVs are associated with zero emissions as they operate completely on battery, thereby reducing air pollution. This type of vehicle has fewer moving parts and encounters lower operating costs with zero noise pollution. However, they can be charged at home using standard electrical outlets or dedicated charging stations, thus eliminating the need for visiting gas stations. The fuel cell electric vehicle market size is predicted to surpass USD 30 billion by 2032, propelled by the rising adoption of electric vehicles globally.

The passenger cars segment captured around 84% share of the U.S. electric vehicle market in 2022. The ever-increasing demand for faster, more efficient, and more reliable vehicles is propelling the two-wheelers segment growth. For instance, in December 2022, the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO), an agency to exchange transportation ideas between transit agencies and 96 major cities of North America, reported that e-bikes are booming due to the rising demand for micro-mobility systems and are providing crucial options for essential workers. Similarly, the U.S. has been the second-largest e-commerce market, and this has increased the demand for last-mile delivery solutions.

U.S. Electric Vehicle Regional Analysis

California Electric Vehicle (EV) Market Size, 2021-2032 ( USD Billion)

The California EV market generated USD 18.2 billion revenue in revenue in 2022. California has the presence of cultural & technological hubs, such as Los Angeles and San Francisco, where new trends & technologies are often adopted quickly. Moreover, gasoline prices in the state are often higher than in other states, and thus the adoption of EVs is appealing in terms of cost-saving benefits. In addition, the California Ambient Air Quality Standards (CAAQS) has formulated stringent rules and standards compared to the national standards. This has made Californians tend to be more environmentally conscious and consider buying electric vehicles.
